Ship sinking -- and now washed ashore, with only 10 items to bring:
....I was minding my own business, as usual....
When I got a call from Martin. He found this great little island
with even better lobsters......
So I pack my suitcase, get in my car
and drive down to the harbor to get on my boat
But of course I don't get very far with this boat, not even on seas this calm
So this is where I wash ashore
with my suitcase, containing:
First up my first Pam, the one that got all this madness started,
my much loved 176, light, versatile and still one of the best Pam's IMHO
and of course my 87 OOR which is a great example of being at the right place at the right time,
well I guess it's always good to be in Florence at the Boutique
My iPod has just 2 songs on it
Miles Davis, So What from the legendary album Kind of Blue
Stanley Clarke with Billy Cobham, Live at the Greek playing School Days
No the correct version, but still a great performance at North Sea Jazz.
I only read on holidays and there is one book would re-read because it is somewhat mind boggling to me.
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. I remember reading this at the pool during a holiday and people looked very
strange at me when I had to turn the book upside-down to keep reading.
I'm not a big movie buff, but as I'm dutch this one always makes me crave for a schmoke and a pancake.
That would be this one of our little girl Annelot. She was born on September 15th last year,
5 weeks early but all is fine with her ever since.
Last summer, end of June, we went to Italy with the whole family. We had an awesome time together in Tuscany.
Little did we know that this would be our last holiday together.
On the day my wife and I got married (August 15th 2008) my dad got sick and he couldnt make it to our wedding.
As it turned out, the pneumonia we thought he had, in fact was cancer.
My dad passed away on December 15th leaving a big gap in all our lives.
This photo was taken during our last holiday, doing what he liked the most, telling stories to his grand children.
Here I would have to cheat and pick two (sorry). The two most important girls in my life : Christine and Annelot
Christine is the one that picked me up after a ruff period in my life. Classic story, she was a colleague of mine, we hooked up and
the rest is history, well not ancient history because we first met 2,5 years ago
And five months ago this little wonder was born, Annelot.
That would be a bistecca fiorentina (preferably flame grilled on a BBQ somewhere in Tuscany)
Together with a bottle of Tenuta Dell Ornellaia
And a panne cotta della Nonna as desert
And that's it, nothing more, nothing less
Hope you all liked it!
Please post your name underneath. I'll pick the next DID dude (or gall) next Monday, thanks for watching!
